Red Slavery
by joann flanagan
There was a planter named Abercrombie,
A spurned mammaloid turned him into a zombi,
Then just when you thought it couldn't get worse,
A vengful papaloid cast a more terrible curse-
Sold to Red China's satelite Walmart was the zombi Abercrombie!

ALL DUE CONSIDERATION AND ADMIRATION IS DUE THIS PATRICK ! AS FOR

YOU WAL-MART, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING SHARING THE SAME

PAGE WITH THIS INDIVIDUAL? AS BRIGHTLY AS PATRICK SHINES WE STILL

CAN SEE YOU WAL-MART PARISTICAL, PROMOTING YOUR SELF OFF AN-

-OTHERS DEEDS.

HOW DID PATRICK GET HIRED? WHO FILLED OUT HIS APPLICATION? WHO

HAD TO DO HIS CBB's WITH OR FOR HIM? WHO FILLS OUT HIS TIME SLIPS?

WHO READS COMMUNICATIONS FROM MGT AND OR TIME CLOCK? WHO

READ THE BENEFITS BOOKLET TO HIM AND HELPED HIM ON ANY ACTION

DECIDED ON? BETTER HAVE BEEN DONE AT WORK, OR IT'S TIME WORKED

OFF THE CLOCK HUH? WAL-MART.

HE'S BEEN EMPLOYED FOR 2YRS. HE JUST FINISHED HIS 9 MONTH COURSE

IN MARCH. Hmm....FOR MORE THAN A YEAR HE WORKED LITERATE

CHALANGED AND YOU DID NOTHING WAL-MART. YOU USED HIM AS A MULE

DIDN'T YOU? YOU TOOK NO STEPS TO INVOLVE HIM IN WAL-MART'S

LITERACY PROGRAM. YOU WANTED TO KEEP WHAT YOU HIRED. SOMEONE

WHO FELL THROUGH THE SYSTEM AND DIDN'T RECEIEVE A FULL ACCOUNT-

-ING OF THEMSELVES. USUALLY THEY ARE THE ONES YOU CAN CONTROL

WITH THE LEAST EFFORT. THEY REMAIN AFRAID AND UNSURE OF THEIR

OWN WORTH. NOT PATRICK, HE MOVED ON . IT LOOKS LIKE HE WILL

MOVE ON EVEN FURTHER. HE DOESN'T PLAN TO STAY WITH WAL-MART.

HEAVY EQUIPMENT OPERATIONS I BELEIVE. WELL GOOD FOR HIM!

JUST A COUPLE OF OBSERVATIONS;

1
HOW COULD YOU LET PATRICK AND HIS FAMILY SPEND 13K FOR 9

MONTHS OF CLASSES? WITH IT BEING ONLY A COUPLE OF CLASSES

A WEEK. IT'S CLEAR PATRICKS FAMILY COULD HAVE USED SOME KIND

OF GUIDEANCE.**

2
HE ONLY NOW IS PERHAPS IN ELECTRONICS. WITH NO ACRUEMENT OF

READING SKILLS FOR OVER THE FIRST YEAR OF EMPLOYMENT YOU HAD

PATRICK IN MAINTEANCE. IF YOU CAN'T READ SKU #' OR INVOICES, OR

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND SIGNING, YOU CAN'T STOCK SHELVES OR

PULL FREIGHT TO EFFECTIVELY. MAINTENANCE, YOU CAN FOLD THEM

INTO THAT PROGRAM THOUGH. PROBABLY NOT MUCH HARDER THAN

EMPLOYING AN ILLEGAL, IS IT ? YOU HAD TO BRUSH OUT THE DEPT NAME

JUST BELOW WHERE PATRICK'S NAME IS LOCATED ON HIS NAME BADGE.

THATS WHY THE WHITE RECTANGLE SHAPE BELOW HIS NAME. YEAH, YOU

KNOW, WHERE THE DEPT AREA GOES. YOU NOTICED TOO LATE ABOUT

THE SCREW-UP HUH? IF IT SAID ELECTRONICS WHY WOULD YOU WHITE

IT OUT? ALSO, PATRICK I BELEIEVE WOULD HAVE MORE PROMOTIONAL

TAGS, BUTTONS, ETC, ON HIS VEST. LOOKS JUST LIKE UNITED WAY AND

THE SUPER BOWL PIN. I'M GLAD FOR PATRICK. I'M EVEN MORE PLEASED

THAT HE INTENDS TO LEAVE WAL-MART!


STORY IN WAL-MART WORLD HOW ASSOCIATE PATRICK THOUGH HAVING
A HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA, COULD NOT READ. PATRICK ON HIS OWN HAS
CHANGED HIS ENVIORNMENT AND LIFE. VOL 34 APRIL 2004

** MAYBE YOU WANT PEOPLE TO THINK IT COSTS 13K (THOUSAND) TO LEARN
TO READ. WHEN YOU MAKE 7 TO 9 DOLLARS AN HOUR, IT PROBABLY WOULD MAKE YOU THINK TWICE ABOUT TRYING. THATS WHAT YOU WANT
TO,HAPPEN WAL-MART. HOW MUCH MONEY PATRICK COULD HAVE SAVED
THROUGH ADULT EDUCATION AT A COMMUNITY COLLEGE. HE COULD HAVE
BEEN IN AN ENVIRORNMENT FELLOW ADULTS TOO. NOT HAVING TO DEAL
WITH THE EMBARASSMENT OF ATTENDING SCHOOL WITH CHILDREN. WITH
NO DOUBT SOME OF CHILDRENS CRUEL WAYS EXPRESSING THEMSELVES.
WAL-MART.....YOU ARE THE FAILURE!!!!!!!

I am simply outraged by the fact that Walmart corporate office considers me and all others that walk through their doors mere impulse buyers, who should spend less because, half of what we buy we don't need! I resent being compared to as a flaw! ..I have a good number of flaws. For instance, I am the perfect Wal-Mart customer in that my life is made up almost entirely on impulse buys. It goes on to say how they haven't a clue on how much money they spend. Also how their friends advise them to be more frugal with spending.. The article begins with a defeatists additude toward resolutions and then with an arrogant, if not sanctimonious apraisl of anyone keeping their word. This catorization of a Walmart shopper comes from Walmart's publication to it's employee's ' Walmart World '. The article is authored by ' Geoff Gloeckler '. Most important is not the individual who penned this trash but, that the corporate mind set is so geared in demographics and profiling they allowed this garbage to get through. So next time you are treated as though you are a mind less boob or, just one of the herd of impulse twits. Remember, follow Geoff's advice and don't spend anything. Show Geoff and all the other Walmart elite at their main office you , raise children, have jobs, serve your country, go to school, most importantly do all these things and much more without the need of some retail ingrate bitting the hand that feeds it!

----Your Original Comments Were----

ACCORDING TO YOUR CORPORATE RESPONSE FROM JEAN COX YOU DO NOT

SHOW ANY SPECIAL CONSIDERATION TO A SERVICE PERSON WHEN YOU AD-

-JUST THEIR BONUS DEPENDING ON TIME SPENT AWAY. THIS IS NOT ABOVE

AND BEYOND BY ANY STRETCH. YOU ARE ONLY IN COMPLIANCE WITH EXIST-

-ING LAWS. OTHERWISE FACED WITH DISCRIMINATION ETC. YOU DO NOT

PROVIDE WHAT YOU ADVERTISE. IT IS DISRESPECTFUL FOR YOU TO KEEP

THE ' PATRIOTISM AWARD ' YOU JUST RECEIVED. AS OUR MILITARY FACES

THE SITUATIONS OF OUR TIME'S THEY CONTINUE TO HONOR US AND THEM-

SELVES WITH AN ON GOING TRADITION OF GOING BEYOND. YOU WAL-MART

ARE TAKING CREDIT FOR SOMETHING YOU WON'T DO UNLESS YOU RECEIVE

TAX BREAK FOR IT. GIVE BACK THAT AWARD ! DO YOU WANT AN AWARD

FOR FOLLOWING ' FMLA' REGULATIONS TOO ?

hey

wal-mart has to fight on every beach so that the leftists, nimbys, and bananas (like you) don't shut down the company.

A&P got legislated out of business, and if wally world doesn't fight everyone to ensure that it still is allowed to do business it will die too.

microsoft had to do this and they won, Standard oil lost. good people don't legislate against businesses, good people allow everyone to choose with whom they do business without using the state to control things.

go bentonville!

They pulled that stunt here too. They met opposition, and basically replied with "No no no, you don't understand. It's going to happen, you just have to tell us how."

And this in a town that already has two Wal-Mart stores.
